    that looks sick! it seems like what i would need because with higher rpm engagement that means you can crank up the idle without crawling it. it looks like it would perform great too. let us know how it goes man!

    i took me a bit too, lol! that little silver part in the middle is two even parts and they are the clutch pads. they move apart evenly like this < > and grip against the clutchbell and engage.

    its a flywheel and clutch in one...the middle silver thing is actually 2 huge clutch shoes (supposed to give more surface area than any other clutch) they spread apart when throttling...and there 2 springs so it ingages at a higher rpm than other clutches....which is why i ordered a wheely bar too...lol


    for those that dont understand how it works/\/\/\/\

    I bought that ages ago but never got a chance to try it out... It is for the TRX cranks where as i have a O.S. crank in my Jato, you got the idea how it works though, one spring goes in the front side of the clutch shoes and the other in the back where it is not visable. I wouldn't bother drilling out holes though as it is actually extreamly light, i think it must be made of aluminium.
